I have to laugh at this.  Your first question(not numbered.. ie links of source code) is already answered and at least to my reading clearly available on the GIMP website.   Your second question(item number 1, which at least for linux is also answered) indicates to me that you are not likely not a programmer.    

Quite frankly, my suggestion to you is you need to *HIRE a competent programmer.. PERIOD...EXCLAMATION POINT*.   While compiling is not hard(on Linux anyway), it is a quite tedious process to make sure your build environment is set up correctly and then you likely have to compile a number of dependencies prior to actually getting to compile GIMP.     machines.   If you happen to be using Windows, quite honestly, you will spend FAR more time and aggravation just getting your machine set up to do a compile than you would to do the compile itself.  Next,the biggest issue is not so much compiling, but compiling it is such a way as to make it re-distributable to other machines.

As for items 2 and 3, well... the information is documented in the source code.  Once you obtain a programmer to do the work, he can likely figure out the answer to these two items within an hour or so of time, but if not, he can always either a) subscribe to the developers list or b) check out the IRC channel to answer the question.  

What your asking for is like asking a doctor to tell gas station clerk over an email how to do Brain Surgery.  While anyone can quickly learn the beginning steps(ie, save the area of the head, cut skin flap and folder back, carefully cut a section of skull, remove skull section, cut out tumor, stop bleeding, replace skull section, sew/stable skin back), the hard part is making sure that your finished product works(ie, the guys brain actually functions and he is not a vegetable, lost motor function in parts of his body, lost cognitive functioning).
